Who made MyAtoms?

I'm an indie developer, and I'm also a book lover and a note-taking lover. So I developed MyAtoms to fulfill my own needs. I put a lot of effort into refining this software, and now I hope that others who share these passions can also benefit from it. I promise to continue maintaining and improving MyAtoms for all users.

What's your business plan?

There is no plan to raise money from VC, I want to make decisions based on what is best for my customers and this platform itself, rather than being influenced by outside investors. There is no plan to build a big team and try to get a big market share of note-taking apps. This is just a small piece of software, and currently it's up to me to pay the cost, and I'm ready to run MyAtoms for 10 years. In the future, I hope that MyAtoms will become a sustainable small business of its own.
